Cobbs Bus Café & Beach

What is more enjoyable than ice cream on the beach?

A new addition to Cobbs Farm this year - a giant wooden sandpit! An age-old resource, the sandpit is a great place for children to develop social skills while learning the values of textures and measures by digging, building, and sieving the sand.

Their sandpit is free to customers and can be accessed from our Play Barn or farm shop garden.

This year you will find Whippy style ice cream available in a range of flavours. They also serve Jude’s dairy-free ice cream, plant-based 'Pawsome' ice cream (to cater to every family member!), homemade toasties, hot drinks, and cake!

Their  milkshakes return for another summer on Cobbs Farm! They have some extremely decadent flavours to choose from, and some dairy-free options too. They also serve a range of hot and cold drinks.

Enjoy your ice creams and milkshakes in their quaint top deck seating or, on those sunnier days, perch on one of their outdoor picnic benches instead.

    The Family Owl Spotting Experience!

    Approx 2hrs

    To see these beautiful and mesmerising small owls is something you wont forget. You will learn all about our resident Owls in the UK with many interesting facts about them. If we are lucky too as the light drops away we may see a Tawny Owl moving about the tress as they go out to hunt for the evening.

    It is now the end of the breeding season and most of the owls are off finding suitable places to roost over the winter so they are hard to find.

    These experiences will continue from March 2022 so keep an eye out for dates or if interested drop us a line and we will contact you when they are back on.

    Family History Advice Clinic

    Just beginning your family history research and need some advice? Baffled by so many competing research websites?

    Banging your head against a brick wall? Or struggling with some other issues? In this one-to-one session, one of our seasoned advisors will help you make some progress.

    To make the most of your session our advisors will carry out some preliminary research beforehand, and for that we need you provide us with some information please:

    • to tell us what you’ve done so far
    • describe the nature of the problem
    • attach copies of any key documents such as BMD certificates, research notes
    • if possible, provide a link to a family tree we can view (members – if your tree has been uploaded to YourTrees, that would be perfect) or at least attach a copy of a hand drawn tree of the immediate family of the people you’re researching

    After you’ve booked you’ll be taken to a page where you can enter that information.

    You can do it later but it’s much better to prepare that material now and complete the form while you’re at the keyboard and the topic is fresh in your mind.

    Bookings close 7 days before the session to give us time to research your submission.

    But every extra day helps, as we’re manned solely by part-time volunteers so the earlier you book, the better.

    These sessions are face-to-face.
